Trivia

Some changes from the pilot vs. the rest of the series: The recording booth becomes a lounge later in the series, and we never hear another mention of the staff ever having to record anything again. Though there is mention of having to work on tapes, it's never revealed where this is done. The business offices are stated to be in a different building entirely but later Jimmy seems to conduct all business from his office upstairs or in the studio itself. People in the studio (like Matthew) are expected to do things not directly related to broadcasting such as bill advertising companies. Handyman Rick is replaced by Joe, the actress playing Catherine is changed. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy James: What's on your mind?
Dave Nelson: Two things. Well, first, I want you to promise me when my time is up here, you'll tell me yourself and not have my replacement fire me.
Jimmy James: What's the second thing?
Dave Nelson: Well, uh, I wanted to let you know that I understand now that what you put me through today was a test.
Jimmy James: Could be. Or, could be I'm just making it all up as I go along.
Dave Nelson: Which is it?
Jimmy James: You'll never know.
